Terror Trial Shown Back Garden ‘Bomb Test’ Video

From Sky News

Jurors in the trial of an alleged suicide bomb plotter have been shown a film said to show him experimenting with home-made explosives.The footage appears to show Mohammed Rehman filming himself detonating a bomb next to a child’s bicycle in his back garden, the court was told.

Prosecutors said Rehman, 25, planned to “up-scale” the explosives for a deadly attack in London ahead of the 10th anniversary of the 7/7 bombings.

Rehman is on trial with his secret wife Sana Ahmed Khan, 24, who is accused of helping him plan the atrocity. 

An image of a hunting knife, similar to the one brandished by British Islamic State militant Mohammed Emwazi, known as “Jidahi John”, was also among the evidence presented at the Old Bailey. The knife was found at Rehman’s home in Reading when the pair were arrested on 28 May.

Extremely dangerous chemicals, including more than 10kg of urea nitrate, which is extremely explosive and had the potential to cause “multiple fatalities”, were also discovered, the court heard. A bomb was just days from being completed, jurors were told.

Rehman is accused of buying ingredients for the explosives on eBay with the help of his wife. 

He also allegedly claimed to have planted explosives at his bedside which could be triggered at the touch of a button, saying: “Nobody gets in the way of my Jihad”…
